When you’re busy working on your computer, isn’t it such a hassle to put your Android phone to your ear just to make and receive calls? You probably can’t help but wonder if there is an easier way to do this. When you’re swamped with tasks, you might ask, “Can I transfer Android phone calls to a Windows 10 computer?” Well, you will be delighted to learn that soon, it will be possible for you to manage incoming and outgoing calls via your Windows PC, using a built-in app.

Using Apps to Transfer Content to Windows PCs

Most guides that teach you how to use the Your Phone app on Windows 10 illustrate how you can share content between your computer and smartphone. There are compatible programs that you need to install on your computer and on your Android device. You need to get the application from Microsoft Store, then add it to your PC. Moreover, you must get the Your Phone Companion app from Google Pay, and install it on your phone.

If you have the time and patience to add these apps to your Android phone and computer, this solution will definitely be useful for you. However, you should know that the capabilities of the Your Phone app are limited to messages and photos. That means, it won’t allow you to transfer calls to your PC.

Having the Right Android Version

Before you try the method we mentioned above, you should check what version of Android you have on your phone. Keep in mind that apps like Your Phone only support Android 7.0 and later. Also, you will not be able to use the app when you want to link an iPhone to your PC.

An Upcoming Windows 10 Built-In App for Transferring Android Phone Calls to a PC

According to an article released by Aggiornamenti Lumia, there will be a new system app in the March 2019 Update, also known as the Insider Windows 10 19H1 version. From the Windows.CallingShellApp screenshots, we can safely conclude that the built-in program will allow users to transfer Android phone calls to their Windows PC. Thus, there will be no need to download apps from Google Play or Microsoft Store.

Aggiornamenti Lumia also shared a screenshot of a notepad file associated with the new system app. There’s a string of phone and computer speaker references, including the following:

  • Preparing…Transfer to PC
  • On speaker
  • Send to phone
  • Call is in progress
  • Transfer
  • Couldn’t transfer

Because of this information, there have been rumors going around that the Your Phone app will soon have a feature which will allow users to transfer calls from their smartphones to their Windows computer. Microsoft has not released an official statement regarding this, but the tech company is definitely working on extending the functionality of the app.

You still have a long way to go before March 2019 comes, but it wouldn’t hurt if you prep your PC for the update. If you want to be able to smoothly transfer calls from your Android phone to your Windows computer, we recommend installing Auslogics BoostSpeed.
